Event description

Description

This free event is to help raiser funds for the American Diabetes Association's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes. Our team is participating in the Riverside Walk, which will take place on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at Fremont Park.

There will be raffle prizes, including tickets to Knott's Berry Farm, Aquarium of the Pacific, dinner at Paradise and wine giveaways, Gladstones gift card, theater tickets and more.

This fundraiser and the walk is my way of helping the roughly 30 million people living with diabetes in America. People like Craig Kohut, my partner who passed away on December 20, 2014 at 49 years of age. While the picture of perfect health anf fitness, Craig was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 9. We all know someone close to us -- whether a colleague, co-worker, family member or friend who suffers from Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

Our goals are to increase awareness of this devastating disease and to raise money to support the American Diabetes Association - the world’s leading diabetes research and education non-profit.

If you cannot attend the fundraiser, you can always make a donation to our team by visiting: main.diabetes.org/goto/Craig_Kohut. Any amount you can give will make a difference.

Funds raised will support the search for better treatments and a cure, protect the rights of people living with diabetes (ADA has an extremely helpful legal advocacy division), push for better government funding for diabetes research, help keep kids safe at school, enable more kids with diabetes to attend one of the Association’s 60+ life-changing summer camps, provide people who’ve just been diagnosed with essential support and information they need to get and stay healthy and so much more.

For more information about the walk, diabetes, and how you can help make a difference to find a cure for this disease, please visit our website at: main.diabetes.org/goto/Craig_Kohut.
